Our Museum has lost a beloved volunteer, Irv Fraser.  Our Programme Manager and Volunteer Coordinator, Jon Ambler, wrote, ” For over a decade, Irv was our handyman and builder, and there is no part of our Museum that did not benefit from his skill and effort.  When we say something was ‘Irv built’, it means that it was built remarkably strong… he had a funny expression for everything, and took great joy and pride in his work.

A ‘Spirit of the Volunteer’ winner a few years ago, Irv represented all the very best attributes of a member of our Museum family.  He will be terribly missed.”

In no particular order, here are some memories of Irv’s time with our Museum.
